. >> they are trying to suck the life blood out of the economy. >> vampires? really, mr. romney? this sucking up to the right wing went too far. nice try, moderate mitt. but we got the tape and we got you. water will work for a few seconds but if you're not drinking it, it's going to get dry again. i recommend biotene. all the biotene products like the oral rinse...the sprays have enzymes in them. the whole formulation just works very well. it leaves the mouth feeling fresh. if i'm happy with the results and my patients are happy with the results, i don't need to look any farther. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabe
of legislation, sitting in congress. and it is much ado about nothing, this election is about the economy, the president has not performed. he is chasing every rabbit down the trail to make this thing about his own record, and the miserable condition of the economy. and that is what we'll talk about. >> but isn't the problem? it comes down to trust, and therefore, we have to trust him, generally. and even his position on abortion in the las 12 months has flip-flopped on abortion. >> it has not, piers. >> it has. >> it has not, piers -- >> let me put the allegations to you, and you can respond. the allegation is that he was saying before i want to repeal roe versus wade, and i want to power to go to the state. and he says now he has no plans regarding abortion. so which is it? >> listen, he is referring to whether or not there is some piles of legislation in congress that he is pursuing in his presidency. he is committed to, and has said it still yet today the fact that we will not be funding abortion with taxpayer's money, whether it be in his own budget or whether it be in foreign aid. h
't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what about those recent numbers in the latest job report and showing a dip in the unemployment. former chairman jack welch is skeptical. meaning that employers added a modest 114,000 jobs and the drop comes at a critical time for the president who is coming off a weak debate performance with romney. joining us is new york times best selling author out with the latest book. ann coulter. at this point in time the president said we will be at 5.6 and enjoying that part of the economy and a more comfortable position and now they are running with this new number. what is your response. >> it is noticeable that a lot of economist are saying this is not possible. you would need more than 114,000 jobbings. i don't think it matters except to broadcasting tv shows or writing for newspaper what number they throw up on the screen. people know they are out of work and in jobs and they are way overqualified for and working part-time. so many people are going out of business and under working now. 23 million unemployed difference
for a fourth day of losses. the dow down triple digits near session lows right now. the economy is "modestly growing." that has not turned the market around. the biggest laggers on the dow, chevron, alcoa, and caterpillar. facing a broad-based selloff. across the board, we will keep our eye on those stocks for you. no surprise to see alcoa drop in today. kicking off earnings after the bell yesterday beat estimates but cut global demand, that outlook anyway and that stock is suffering. yum much better after his report, shares are rallying this morning. apple flipping two days of losses, in green territory. shares are up as well expecting a smaller version of the popular ipad coming next week. of course we will be covering it for you on fox business. traders on the new york stock exchange, cme group and the nymex. not even sure what to call this report today out of the fed. >> neutral and unexciting, that is what we got. the facts and the data we're getting, the market trending based upon third-quarter earnings pretty much telegraphed into the market. quite interesting to me how we drifted low
it a cliff but you should have spasms a year ender that could take the whole economy under when all the bush tax cuts phase out and all the automatic spending cuts kick in, a one-two punch that the most optimistic economies say will not the recovery for a loop, millions of americans likely to lose their jobs and millions of american families likely to face thousands more in taxes. "new york times" says the cliff could be more like a slope. if congress doesn't move fast, kick the recovery or maybe the country goodbye. it is the story that no one is talking about. you have mentioned it, but we are looking at the abyss and no one is touching it. >>guest: what is amazing to me, this is the most predictable, avoidable financial crisis we have ever had in the history of this country. you are so right, if the bush tax cuts expire and all the automatic spending cuts go into play, meaning the himmation -- elimination of the a.t.m. affecting 30 million people, the tax holidays goes around, unemployment benefits go away, it will are horrendous, 14 of 17 economists now say it will put us in a recession
, meant to signal romney will continue to attack the president on the economy, and jobs, but, also on foreign policy and all of the issues, of being commander-in-chief. in the 2012 campaign. >> arthel: thank you very much, a big crowd waiting for mitt romney and the president had no public events today but his campaign says that it has noted stopped him from shattering a major record. carl mentioned this earlier. september fund-raising ended at $181 million. topping his previous record by nearly $70 million. it's the biggest single month haul he has had during this is re-election bid and the president said more than 1.8 million people donated last month. republicans have yet to report their september totals. >> rick: major defense budget cuts are set to automatically kick in at the end of the year and time is running out for congress to stop it from happening and it could trigger job losses as well. why is this white house advising defense contractors to ignore a law requiring them to send layoff notices to their employees? chief congressional correspondent, mike emanuel live in wa
into the minds of american voters how he would handle women's health issues, the economy. i couldn't say how he would pay for the $5 trillion tax cut the republicans put forward for the wealthiest americans. one of your panelists said if you read through the transcript on issue after issue, you saw vice president biden have command of the issue. you saw an empty suit when it came to paul ryan. >> let me ask about one example where there seems to be some consensus joe biden made a misstep. it was the question about libya last night. take a listen. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time, we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us, that they knew. >> the romney campaign released this statement saying biden wrongly stated that the administration was not aware of requests for more security from our diplomatic facilities in libya, but we now know from the sworn testimony of two u.s. security officials who were stationed in libya, that there were repeated requests for more security in the
play it. >> spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> all right. i don't want -- >> no, no. >> i can imagine it would seem offensive. here is the question had it comes to his words versus the president's words. the president, everyone hangs on every syllable or consonant. mitt romney, does he have more latitude or is he under the same microscope over seize? >> he is not under the same microscope. some of the things he's said in the past before that comment about spain, for instance, about the palestinians and how israelis are somehow implying culturally business minded where as the palestinians are not and some of the things he said regarding russia, for instance, that it is america's number one geopolitical foe, and those have been framed in the foreign press and other countries outside of the united states as gaffes by someone who is not experienced in f
that used to be. bill: republican nominee continues to press on this issue, that's the economy. >> can we afford four more years like the last four years? he wants another stimulus. how did that first one work out? and then, he wants to pick winners and losers among companies, or losers in his case and then, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though th
they provided points and issues on zingers and economy and debate decorum. >> mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground but i think people would be better served if we don't keep interrupting each other. >> with regard to social security, we will not, we will not privatize it. if we listened to governor romney and congressman during the bush years, man where all those seniors would be now if there money had been in the market. their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guaranty of medicare. >> here he is the problem. they got caught with their hands in the cookie jar turning medicare into a piggybank for obamacare. >> usually when there is a crisis we pull together. we pull together as a nation. as i said, even before we knew what happened to the ambassador the governor was holding a press conference, was holding a press conference. that is not presidential leadership. >> this is becoming more troubling by the day. they first blamed a youtube video. now trying to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you shou
and they are talking about the many roadblocks as they see it to getting our economy back on track. dagen: peter barnes is in d.c. with a whole lot more. hey peter. peter: hey guys a football metaphor from the quarterback of the business roundtable this morning referring to the nfl lockout of professional referees that was resolved a couple of weeks ago, he joined the heads of the u.s. chamber of commerce, the national manufacturers association, and the national retail federation in calling on congress to reduce uncertainty in government policy to help create the confidence businesses large and small need to invest and hire. and with the clock running down, they urged congress and the white house to get moving on fixing the fiscal cliff. >> you really don't even have a tax code in the country today. this is for large business, medium sized business, mom and pop, the individual entrepreneur, what are the rules? i mean it is like we're playing with the replacement referees in the irs. peter: tom donahue of the u.s. chamber said nothing is going to happen until november 7th. first got to see who wins on n
't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. just try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> reporter: the struggling economy is considered the president's soft spot and number one issue for voters. it's a centerpiece of romney's campaign, they hit the president hard throughout on employment including in this week's debate. >> we have 43 three straight months above 8%. i'll help create 12 million new jobs in this country. >> reporter: the new jobs report with unemployment below 8% robbed romney of one of his most reliable campaign lines. he said friday the economy should be better and that the decline in the unemployment rate showed how much people are struggling. >> looks like unemployment is getting better. the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day that the president got elected our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> reporter: now advisers tell me romney will continue prosecuting the case ag
for this country. you look at what's happening with the economy, take a look at the mess all over the world they are writing and writing with hatred toward us, toward the united states. when i see that and see the kind of effort he put on to put these people together and make them like us, boy do they hate us it's the exact opposite. i came up with the expression the unlucky president. he is unlucky for this country. not unlucky for himself. if you look at the campaigns and what he did he had a lot of luck on the side. he limped over the finish line. he is unlucky for the country. >> i don't know if it is luck as much as he reads a teleprompter pretty well and they never gave it any scrutiny. nobody closed this election. it's still wide open. that raises the question if you were sitting across not from me but mitt romney you had a mess samming to send mitt what would it be? >> i think they have to get tougher. i think their convention was not good. you thought the democrats did a good job. he was talking about how they picked up something with their convention they are talking about women a
romney is now ahead of president obama in terms of trusting him to do a better job on the economy. how much are the american people just not looking at these numbers or at least questioning their veracity? >> i think that american people are having undoubtably as much difficulty translating and interpreting the numbers as much as the professionals are. the electorate is extremely volatile. much more volatile than any person imagine. with romney's numbers bouncing as much as they did after one debate, that shows people -- i do not think it is an election of committed voters, this will be in election of leaners. they are all swaying up there. connell: a lot of people have not made up their mind. these are big moves. we head into tonight and then next week, can the president use these jobs numbers as an argument that jobs and the economy is improving? >> i think, clearly, vice president biden and mr. obama next week will use these numbers to say things are getting better. the burden will be on the opposition to explain why the economy has been as weak as it has been. i have to say, i give
's not a viable business. you can't have a 5% growth in employment from household businesses in an economy that's growing at about 2 tenths of a percent per month. i think what you have basically got is a lot of very high quality unemployment masquerading as home businesses. >> what are people intimating here that the books are cooked? is that possible to do? >> it's just a flawed methodology. they call you up, they ask you if you are working. you are making a couple hundred dollars a month they say i'm working. you count as much as donald trump does. he is he working too. it's a flawed methodology that doesn't know how to deal with part-time workers that are self-employed. >> so no cooking the books, just a flawed methodology. >> i would believe my mother would love me more than i would believe that the bls would cook the books for the president of the united states. >> did your mother love you. >> she loved me. >> how could she not. >> peter morris is i, thanks so much for coming. in we appreciate it. >> see you later, guys. >> we he have a lot to tell you about because the u.s. ambassador su
given the economy -- >> that's not even what i'm getting at. >> people feel fundamentally better about the state of the economy. >> did i say i love jack welch? >> forget what jack welch said. i'm talking about people who are trying to say that perhaps people have given up. and if you look into the numbers of the bureau of labor and statistics put out, the number of people who are discouraged and have given up has gone down in the past year by 235,000. and in the past four years, by over 400,000. that number is being skewed out there by those who want to say that the job numbers aren't what they appear to be. long-term unemployment is still very, very high, but those people are still looking. >> the u-6 number for those cognizant. >> coming up -- >> you're right. republicans are in the dumps. you're right. >> no, they're trying to pretend the numbers that they depend on when they're good in their camp. >> you can't have it all. >> are skewed. >> i don't know. if it continues this way, i think republicans can have it all. >> they're not. not going to have it all. >> coming up -- i'm so
.8%. the president said in his weekly web address that the burden is on congress to keep the economy moving forward. nbc news white house correspondent, mike viqueira joins me now. mike, what more political fallout do you think we're going to see over the jobless numbers? >> reporter: the jobs report was both symbolic and substantiative. symbolic because it got below 8%, that's considered a threshold over which no president has ever been re-elected. and substantiative because it gets down to where the unemployment rate is -- was when president obama took office in january of 2009. and don't you know, melissa, yesterday at two campaign rallies in the battleground states of virginia and ohio, one each, the president pointed that out. here at the white house, at the campaign, campaign headquarters in chicago, they are certainly hopeful that this will change the narrative, stem some of the momentum that mitt romney has undoubtedly received. the bounce he got from what is generally regarded as his debate victory on wednesday night. a lot of the president's supporters, very disappointed in his performanc
for the failure, the misery that this economy is right now and lay out a plan going forward. and i think mitt romney is just going to keep doing that. barack obama can spin and his surrogates can say some of the things stephanie was saying and they can run all these ads they're distractions and try to win this race outside of those debates. but these debates are important because you have two people unfiltered going back and forth on their ideas and their records, and so far, governor romney i think has laid out a pretty compelling case and the president's has been pretty weak. >> so far, he's certainly winning the battle of the debates but there are two more to go and a lot to play for. thank you very much. >> good to be with you, piers. >>> coming up, the actress under fire for supporting mitt romney. why she's facing racist attacks. stacy dash talks to me exclusively. here she comes. so, i'm happy. sales go up... i'm happy. it went out today... i'm happy. what if she's not home? (together) she won't be happy. use ups! she can get a text alert, reroute... even reschedule her package. it's u
the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in those two states but not necessarily in ohio. and the favorable or unfavorable, very important here. romney lifted his favorabilities in all three states as a result of the debate. but in ohio, he's still upside down. obama still over 50 in all three states. so he didn't get hurt. romney got helped. the race got closer. >> we also had a conservative ideological advantage of conservative in the exit polls. what do you tell folks that look at those numbers? >> this tells you you can't weight your data by party idea. we've said
the economy, this failing economy. >> if you can't trust in the numbers. let me make this point as a devil's advocate for people expressing skepticism on the right about these numbers. the number of new jobs found in the household survey, not the headline number of 114,000, it's an a no, ma'am mow louse number, the point is these monthly job numbers, they're estimates. it's a massive economy. they're trying to find using these statistical methods changes in a very large economy. every month afterwards the numbers get revised. they're all over the place. >> in this case they revised the earlier numbers up by some $85, 86,000. this means we have created more jobs in the previous months that have not been added. you talk about manipulation. they should have increased that number by that amount and that would have even been more accurate, but they didn't do that. that's the best estimate they had at the moment. >> right. also to the adp survey that comes out a little before the jobs numbers. it's almost always more jobs than you end up getting in the bureau of labor statistics. there's questio
the world and around this country and especially in the economy. the president has said he was too polite. advisers intimate he's going to be more aggressive obviously. but still, joe biden is joe biden. he's the regular guy. joe six-pack from scranton. president obama, that's not his persona. having said all that, i think it's a fair assumption we're going to see a much more aggressive president obama on tuesday night. >> okay. mike. as always many thanks. we're getting an update on what the gop candidates are doing today in just a minute. >>> first president obama may be reaching out to younger voters next week with another appearance on "the daily show with jon stewart." stewart criticized the president's performance in that first debate so there may be a few jokes at his expense. president obama will do the show on comedy central this coming thursday, two days after the second debate with mitt romney. >>> superstar bruce springsteen is on the road this week. he's singing the praises of president obama. and on thursday the boss will be joined by former president bill clinton, another b

tea party types who say let's focus on rebuilding our economy and america at home. and a third category of classic republican realists, if you will, who are more of the liberal internationalist variety. you have all these groups fighting for romney. amazing quotes even in the new york times today from a leading republican foreign policy advocate saying basically, well, we don't know which one romney is. we'd like to say would the real mitt romney stand up. that's from his allies. there is no wonder we are confused about his policies. he has not yet resolved tension within the team. >> that same piece has unnamed romney advisers saying they have talked with him so little on national security he doesn't know where he stands. he's gone around the world in terms of his position on things. i want to talk about the iran question. romney said, i will put the leaders of iran on notice that the u.s. and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuk already lar weapons capability. i will refer you back to an abc interview september 14 where george stephanopoulos asks mitt r
going on in gasoline markets is the fact that the largest export in the american economy today is refined petroleum products. america is exporting three million barrels of refined product like gasoline, diesel and jet fuel out of the gulf coast but what that is doing is keep, refining margins nice and profitable but it is also elevating gas prices artificially higher than they otherwise would be. >>eric: could you suggest the refiners not sell to the best beller? >>guest: not if it is negatively impacting american drivers and the american economy. >>eric: so you want trade restrictions or protectionist? if you refine it here you keep it here and we make it more expensive for are to do business here but don't sell it anywhere elsewhere the standards are easier to deal with? >>guest: we already have those regulations over crude oil that is produced here in the united states. if you want to export american-produced crude oil you have on get a license to do so from the department of commerce. we ought to at least investigate whether the record level of gasoline exports from america

'm involved in this economy in a very deep way right now in lots of businesses, and this economy is not growing, i guarantee you, at 5%. >> they say a number of these workers are seasonal numbers and maybe work for smaller companies that aren't really tracked in the way the bls tracks these numbers, and so maybe it's small jobs here and there. >> maybe, but let's face it. the number that came out today from the household survey was the highest number since june of '83. >> but what evidence -- >> i have no evidence. >> you don't have any evidence. it's one thing to doubt the numbers and say they should be revised. you said, these chicago guys will do anything. >> last night i had a question mark. >> you wish it was, will these chicago guys -- okay. so you don't really stand by the notion -- >> i stand by it. i stand by these numbers should be examined. >> but do you stand by these chicago guys will do anything? >> i'm not going to change my tweet. i'm not accusing anybody of anything. >> but you say these chicago guys will do anything. >> you see they called romney a liar for the
strokes. we have all been told this is an economy election but the foreign policy discussions have really been bubbling given when's going on in the middle east and africa. another way that governor romney sets a presidential tone, what should we expect today? >> well, i suspect that candidate will talk in broad strokes. he's already indicated that he wants to challenge the president on what happened in lib why and whether there was enough security. he's made clear he's using tough language against rush why and china and he is talked about the economic problems in europe, as well. the problem for mitt romney is that in many cases it's not just what happened during his trip to europe and the middle east. it's really the reaction and some of the gaffes he's made on foreign policy. in referring to spain, for example, as overspending as the source of the problem when in fact it was the property bubble. germany and scandinavian countries spend more than the spanish have. we misunderstood that problem. he's annoyed the british over security and alienated the russians talking about toughening th
with a very weak economy and a very high unemployment rate. it is not good news any way you slice it, patti ann. patti ann: stuart, the national average is much, much lower than that. why is california paying so much more? >> it is a very simple answer. this is a self-inflicted wound in california. they have very, very high emissions and environmental standards and they have to have a special blend of gasoline just for california. that means if there is any kind of problem with the refinerries, the 14 refinerries in california that make this special stuff they have got a supply problem and that's what's happened. they are paying roughly 15 cents extra for every single gallon that is consumed in california. that is because of these environmental rules. now that gets even worse in november when california's cap-and-trade rules go into effect. that will mean another hike in the price of gasoline in california. patti ann: wow! big issues there. stu varney, fox business, thank you. >> sure. bill: stinks to be paying that. fox news alert now. a fierce critic of the united states for years will re
